  23. 23. Traffic Noise & Air Quality Unit Dublin City Council Ambient Environmental Sensor Network Assessment of Noise and Air Quality at a high spatial resolution; Aims:- High resolution sensor network and data collection service Quantification of population exposure to pollutants Production of data sets that will enhance decision making processes in relation to environmental management & improvement of quality of life Identification and making linkages with sources of pollutants Encourage citizen engagement and feedback Making real time data available to the citizens to inform and modify behaviour Mapping of pollution concentration levels in Dublin Assist in research
  24. 24. Traffic Noise & Air Quality Unit Dublin City Council DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL Ambient Sound Monitoring Network •To measure outdoor ambient sound levels in the City •To validate Sound Modelling Outputs •Fulfils commitment in the Noise Action Plan •To be able to assess impact of specific events immediately •To measure diurnal variations over time. Why Monitor ?
  25. 25. Traffic Noise & Air Quality Unit Dublin City Council Dublin City Council Ambient Sound Monitoring Network •Currently Consists of 13 Sites •To be expanded to 20 sites •Hourly Uploads to server but can be more frequent •Direct Measurements of L(A)eq, L(A)10, L(A) 95 •Measurements reported in Lday, Lnight and LDEN •Public accessible website •API available
